“Kirsten’s wealth of knowledge and experience meant that she was able to tailor a garden design for our complex environment and able to incorporate some of our ideas and many of her own to produce an elegant concept design. She was sensitive to our tastes and needs but still able to give practical advice where needed. I would recommend Kirsten in a heartbeat.” – Miriama
